Creative sparks along the Potomac

Created by Neil Takemoto, founder of CoolTown Beta Communities, CreativesDC has already attracted more than 200 members and stands poised to gather many more creative-minded individuals in the DC area.

Members use the forums to bring creativity to Washington’s urban planning. One member proposes bringing San Francisco’s Slow Food Nation event to DC, while another points out that public recreational spaces are as important for adults as they are for children.

Restaurant Left Bank has worked closely with the network — and they have already become a great team. The restaurant has a group designed for members to give creative feedback; it also recently offered up a great fixed-price menu exclusively to CreativesDC.

Improvements to city living stem not from an individual mind but from a creative collective — that’s the thinking behind social network CreativesDC!
